. hope needs a story, a narrative. here is what is going on in this country. president obama now is speaking more forcefully about what he wants to do it and against smoking out those who are obstructing. this is really wonky. anyway, i think one of the most exciting things are the movements of our times. i closed this book out before occupy. i wrote about wisconsin. our correspondent was there for 57 days. that was about occupying the state house. occupy has become a brand. it has also become e ncampments. soon it will need to be more than a space and a place. it will need to go to state houses, occupy banks, occupy congress. take the movement energy into those stairs -- spheres with the ideas matter of the heart of occupy. >> winter is coming. cities like san francisco and oakland and other cities are closing down the encampments and chasing people off. you can drive 90 miles from davis and pepper spray. it is hard to maintain people's attention for long periods of time. i am wondering -- should they be occupying the supreme court? [applause] >> i was talking about that today.
presidency that preceded him. the country did not just choose barack hussein obama to be president. the country chose barack hussein obama to be president twice. we picked him again a second time after watching him in action for four years, and then having a very good chance to pick a new guy instead. this will never happen again. barack obama will never run for office again. and we do not know who will succeed him as president in four years. but the honoring of the office of presidency today, again, entrusted to him, will forever be a day writ large, writ large by us by our generation, our country in our time. we did this. and turning around, a stream of people going the other direction, and taking the long view, taking it in, taking a look, just one more second. we are not going to see this again. joining us now is andrea mitchell, nbc's chief foreign affairs correspondent, host of andrea mitchell reports on msnbc, and a person who is very good at covering inaugurations. >> thank you for that. i love it. >> you have been my lode star for all the time that you have done this. but

. they free us to take the risks that make this country great. lou: president obama seemed to return to the class warfare campaign rhetoric equating freedom with financial success. diminishing the fact that folks work hard for success. >> for we remember the lessons of the past when twilight years were spent in poverty and parents of the child with a disability had nowhere to turn. we do not believe that in this country freedom is reserved for the lucky or happyiness for the few. lou: president obama a day into the four-year term. the inauguration is covered here tonight from all angles. republican of texas joining us, the a-team and monica youley along with the pulitzer prize winning journalist, judy, and joining us here today, and president obama ice second inauguration falling on the martin luther king holiday. the symbolism not lost on the president as he navigated through l pomp and circumstance of the occasion to give a glimtion of the progressive agenda if the next four years. white house correspondent ed henry has the report. >> for president obama, plenty of differences from
our country. >> reporter: mr. obama also recalled the newtown shootingch cause massacre which caused him to push for gun control and a polarizing fight with congress he previously avoided. journey i >> our journey is not complete until all our children-- in the streets of detroit to the hills of appalachia to the quiet lands of newtown-- know that they are in th cared for and cherished and the qui always safe from harm. >> reporter: there was one line tailored specifically for republican audience, the call to reform or eliminate inefficient or irrelevant government programs.a that is a common and often ignored presidential refrain but scott, unavoidable budget new pressures may create new results., >> pelley: major, thank you very much.now a co we don't know a correspondent who's covered more inaugurationsffer, ou than bob schieffer, our chief wa washington correspondent and anchor of "face the nation." bob, how do you assess the day?inaugurati >> well, it was a very unusual inauguration speech, scott, in that there were no real memorable lines. there was no "the only thing we hav
remaining mitt romney fans. >> obama: we do not believe that in this country freedom is reserved for the lucky or happiness for the view. we recognize that no matter how responsibly we live our lives any one of us at any time may face a job loss or a sudden illness or a home swept away in a terrible storm. the commitments we make to each other through medicare, and medicaid, and social security, these things do not sap our initiative. they strengthen us. they do not make us a nation of takers they free us to take the risks that make this country great. >> john: david, that couldn't have been more pointed if he turned to paul ryan and said that line directly to him. do you think he was sending a message across the bell? >> i hope he's sending a message. a lot of progressives look at that and say wait a second, is that the same president who was willing to support the change in social security, or is he going to stand firm. the rhetoric sounds good but how does the president act? what are the offers in negotiation on the table coming. >> john: george, we have 30 second before a bre
that in this country freedom is reserved for the lucky. talking points disagrees with president obama's priority. although. impossible to do what the president wants to do. in short, prosperity. can't be done no matter how much money you spend. much more effective is building a strong society based upon a robust free market and effective, effective social programs. that provide opportunity rather than charity. as the president should know by now. the federal government cannot provide for 320 million people. and the dangerous p danger is is that mr. obama's persistent attempts to do that to redistribute prosperity will bankrupt the nation, causing pain to everyone and making it impossible for poorly educated or kiss advantaged whom he sighted to make a living. the president's address was not an urgent call to reform entitlements, provide oversight on economic abuse or even stimulate the economy. none of that was on display. so it is quite clear that the president is willing to go down in history as a crusader for social justice no matter what happens to the economic fabric of the country. he does
pledge he has held the new candidates to is keeping millions -- it has a role to play in a country rich in the land grant colleges, highways, bridges. i understand the bridge out here is about to be built. i am all for infrastructure. >> obama in a way has to be the luckiest politician. if you look at the republican lineup -- [laughter] it is like michael dukakis in an oversized tank hat. >> the idea that newt gingrich is now at the top of the heap. >> you do not want to be the top because they get shot out. >> it is seems like anybody but romney. >> herman cain is a breath of fresh air. [laughter] >> i am not going to reassess him as he reassesses his campaign. >> herman cain is fabulous. >> newt gingrich -- i am going to get serious on you. newt gingrich is an error lobbyist -- uber lobbyist. barney frank talk about michele bachmann. he also called out newt gingrich and said he held him responsible for the demonization of opponents that has contributed to the atmosphere we live in today. i do think he came into the house. he slashed all of the caucasus and civility. we are seeing this
not strongly enough obama does she think would have those characteristics to lead the country through the issues it faces their? >> and you want to be president? [laughter] that is needed. the office is strange requirement of the people. and i did have a section in the paper and i deleted it specifically because it's on the second term. but whether or not business is a credential for office and i reviewed the fact that george washington really about the president was probably more in today's news than any of the other second term presidents. we can represent his clients in business and is very effective they are, but he himself didn't manage his own affairs very well. and of course we had hoover who could not communicate. some of his policies were actually adopted by roosevelt, construction finance corporation, but he couldn't communicate. he couldn't put together the leadership skills and of course truman and grant were huge failures in business and george h. debbie bush is hardly an exam with a president who is very successful in business, and effective administrator, they didn't co
today was that way back in 1993. >> and dotting the crowd the young celebrities drawn to obama. katie berry and john mayer and jeffrey wright who spoke of the hope of the day. >> it's about the hope of the country and the example we set to the world in terms of free and working democracy. and it's about partnership and it's about what you know, the common ground between all of us as americans. and so, you know, if this doesn't illustrate that then we have a lot of hard work to do. >> and the musical artists mostly represented the young 21st century artists like kelly clarkson. ♪ >> and an obama favorite and friend, beyonce. ♪ for the ramparts we watched ♪ were so gallantly streaming >> we the people, declare today that the most evident of truths, that all of us are created equal. it is the star that guides us still. just as it guided our forebearers through seneca falls and selma and stonewall. >> he was weaving the new tapestry of america as he sees it for the first time in an inaugural address mentioning gay rights calling for marriage equality. >> our journey is not complete
on a fundamentally different path, because the country was ready for it. >> that wasn't the way president obama talked during his first term, but that was the guy who launched his second term yesterday. in an 18-minute address, the president laid out a defense of liberalism, a forceful argument for progressive values. just as president reagan made the conservative movement mainstream in the '80s, this president wants to mainstream liberalism, to leave a center-left country as his political legacy. >> we have always understood that when times change, so must we. that fidelity to our founding principles requires new responses to new challenges. that preserving our individual freedoms ultimately requires collective action. >> the president took on conservative opponents, making this unmistakable reference to wisconsin congressman and republican vice presidential nominee, paul ryan, who called recipients of federal benefits takers during the 2012 presidential campaign. >> the commitments we make to each other, through medicare and medicaid and social security, these things do not sap our initiative

night. star-studded commander in chief ball. president obama and the first lady honor the country's brave men and women of the armed forces. the first lady wore a gown by jason wu, the same designer she wore to the 2009 inaugural ball. performances including alicia keys, brad paisley, marc anthony and jamie foxx who performed "i can't stop loving you" for vice president biden and his wife, jill. earlier the president tipped his hat to the military in attendance. >> this little party is just another way to say something we can never say enough. thank you. thank you for volunteering. thank you for stepping up. thank you for keeping us strong. thank you for always making us proud. i have no greater honor than being your commander in chief. >> four years ago the president and first lady attended ten official inaugural balls. last night the inaugural committee held just two. the lowest number of balls for an inauguration since the eisenhower administration. the highlight of the day, however, took place on the steps of the capitol where the president offered his second-term challenge to

the risks that make this country great. >> here's the "washington post" headline. obama lays out liberal vision. the "new york times" also called it a liberal vision for a second term. and politico writes obama is on offense for liberalism. let me bring in mother jones reporter andy kroll and politico's white house reporter, carrie budoff-brown. good morning. so how different was the tone in this speech? >> i mean, it was very different from the way he, you know, governed for the last four years or attempted to govern. he came at it from sort of a centrist, pragmatist approach, and it didn't work out so well for him a lot of the times. he faced a congress in republican hands for the last two years in the house that did not, you know, accept his agenda or pass it through the way he would like it. so i think he learned from this election, gave him the confidence to say the election delivered a mandate for my vision of government, my vision of politics, one that involves gay rights, immigration, climate change, an issue that he hasn't really spoken of since his attempts to deal with it in 2

politics derail the progressive course that this country is on. president obama looked out to the crowd on the national mall today and saw the full scope of america, young and old, rich and poor, black, white, hispanic, asian. he recognized the moment. he captured it. the mission he is charged with today is perhaps greater than his mission of four years ago. in 2009, he was of course there to lead us out of this economic tragedy that we were living in. in 2013, he needs to lead this country and make it the country that we all want to achieve. >> you and i as citizens had the power to set this country's course. you and i as citizens have the obligation to shape the debates of our time, not only with the votes we cast, but with the voices we lift in defense of our most ancient values and enduring ideals. let us each of us now embrace with solemn duty and awesome joy what is our lasting birthright. with common effort and common purpose, with passion and dedication, let us answer the call of history and carry into an uncertain future the precious light of freedom. thank you, god bless you,
obama was applying the thinking about the unity of the country in the dignity of all men and women to the problems he faced today in saying there's a role for the union, if you will. don't forget, lincoln talked about the union, there's a role for the union, there's a role for all of us, together, to solve the problems that we all face. and that was the lincoln part of it. this came, and there's a big conflicting. we the people believe that enduring security do not require through perpetual war. who turned sworn enemies into the surest of friends. and we must carry these lessons into this time as well. i think he's talking about iran. the one war that you face within the next few moments. >> you may very well be. you have to keep in mind taking those sworn enemies was after we defeated them in war. >> why did he say it tonight? >> i think it's a pivotal point. i think he is going to go back to what he said in the first inaugural and during the first campaign about how it's time for us to put down the sword and figure out how we can help everyone pick up the polish here. and i think
for the history books. that does it for us live from >>> you and i as citizens have the power to set this country's course. >> and now a message of moving forward. president obama gets to work today on his second term agenda. >> harry taliban hunter. the prince home from afghanistan. he has war stories to tell. >> and winter weather alert. a big chill and a big snowstorm forming. it could mess up travel in a huge way this morning. good morning. welcome to "early start." i'm christine romans. >>> i'm john berman, barely. >> he's back. >> it is 5:00 a.m. in the east. >> we're in the beginning of the second term, jason wu's second term. over the pan of 18 minutes, president obama made his vision of his second term crystal clear, making mentions of past civil rights struggles on that martin luther king day, seneca falls, selma, stonewall and laying out his vision for the future, advancing gay rights, tolerance toward illegal immigrants, social welfare programs and stopping climate change. dan loathian was there watching it all with us. dan, friend and foe alike have been calling this a muscular speec
yesterday. >> obama: understand that our country cannot cubing seed when a shrinking few do very well and the many barely make it. the prosperity must rest upon the brood shoulders of a thriving middle class. america thrives when the wages of honest labor liberate families from the brink of hardship. we are true to our creed when a little girl born into the bleakest poverty know she has the same chance to succeed as everybody else, because she is an american. she is free. and she is equal. not just in the eyes of god, but also in our own. >> stephanie: yaw hoo. >> liberal claptrap. kids are born to work in sweatshops. >> stephanie: i loved watching them watch the parade. and how -- how excited -- oh my god -- blanking -- sasha, the younger one was dancing at the -- she was like -- even the president was kind of -- i don't know who that was -- the dancing people. the dancing people. >> the hawaiian dancing people. >> stephanie: i probably would not make living as a parade commentator. >> stephanie: i don't mean to be rude, but some woman on cnn -- she asked wolf blitz
can change this country as president obama talked about in 2008, you know, the change you can believe in, the change you'll work for. >> what's president obama done for labor in these last four years? >> well, i think he's tried to do quite a bit. i think in his heart he definitely supports, you know, working families. you know, part of the outcome piece, is what gets through the u.s. congress. so he definitely supported health care bill much more like speaker pelosi's tn what we ended up getting through the senate finance committee onto the senate floor and eventually adopted a year later. he definitely supported workers' rights legislation. he definitely supported much more aggressive moves to stop the foreclosures. he definitely supported climate change. so part of this is really, you know, we would love to see more active white house support for these democracy initiatives so that the change that i'm sure he still believes in had some reality to it instead of just, you know, on the back bench somewhere. >> did he fight hard enough? i don't want to put you on the spot -- yeah, i wa
that barack obama has been, not only for the country, but for the democratic party. johnathan's point, joe biden was an early rival, who he said very inopportune statements about him. he is super excited if he is confirmed to take on this role. it is a different kind of democratic leadership. people who follow the democratic party on its ups and many downs remember how many other rivals and nominees have been left on the side of the road. and left, really to be seen as somehow an embarrassment, even if they stood for good things, al gore for many years, michael dukakis, and it goes to barack obama's strength, taking people, building them back up. it is good not only for the party but for the country. >> we're going to take a break, every president, their first presidential decision actually happens before they're elected. that is their choice of vice presidential running mate. when i saw what was to become president obama make that decision, knowing joe biden, i was so impressed by the quality of that decision. we have to take a break, we'll talk more on the dancing, there is an evolution,
president obama on the inauguration and celebrate the country with this american tradition. what are your favorite tweets? follow me on twitter at greta wire and send your top picks hakt greta. and the president had the majority and a massive surplus bill and pushed through health care reform. it was an easy political ride. since republicans took the house in 2010 well, it's been gridlock. how do the freshmen congressmen plan to break the stalemate. and first, the issue of obamacare, it's passed, but a lot of dissension about it, your thoughts, what you think you can do with it or you intend to do? >> hopefully we can rein in some of the worst excesses testify and mitigate some of the damage. the law has changed significantly since it's passed and the framers of the law 50 states should have health insurance exchangeses a fewer than 20 do. the medicaid designed to be mandatory, the supreme court says it's not, and i think it gives us to mitigate the law and worst damages and overstate the agencies implementing it, and making sure they're not reducing our religious freedoms. >> greta: what
at the use of the state secrets privilege or the with the obama administration expanded the drone wars, powered special operations forces from jsoc to join special operations command to operate in countries where the united states is not at war, if you look at the way the obama administration essentially boxed congress out of any effective oversight role of the covert aspect of u.s. foreign policy, what we really have is a president who has normalized for many, net -- many liberals, the policies they once opposed under the bush and ministration. this has been a war presidency. yesterday as president obama talked about how we don't need a state of perpetual war, multiple u.s. drone strikes in yemen, a country we are not at war with, where the u.s. has killed a tremendous number of civilians. to make, most disturbing about this is john brennan, who really was the architect of this drone program and expansion of the drone program, these guys are sitting around on tuesdays at the white house come on terror tuesday, discussing who was going to live and die across the world. >> what do you m
-c. where the country is celebrating the inauguration of president barrack obama. here in san francisco. gamany items there are several evenings fall of celebrations. gay rights advocates are also celebrating. in his inaugural address, the gay community heard words never before spoken by >> "our journey is not complete until our gay brothers and sisters are treated like anyone else under the law for if we are truly created equal, then surely the love we commit to one another must be equal as well." >> pam: the president spoke those words with the entire u=s supreme court seated just a few feet away. those same justices are due to rule on california's voter= approved ban on same sex marriage. supporters of gay marriage tell kron four, they have new optimism. >> "proposition 8 is about to go to the supreme court. they rely heavily on public sentiment. and this is our president bringing us into the fold, saying these people matter in a "we, the people" situation: in our country, our relationships matter. so for me it's important that he talks about that before we make it to the supreme co
. immigration is another key issue for obama's second term. >> the obama white house will introduce a major piece of reform legislation on immigration. the problem is that it almost that's deal with what is sometimed called amnesty, legalizing people who are already in this country illegally. that is highly controversial, not just for republicans. >> there is much to do for president obama. and the countdown is on. he has just four more years in was to seal his legacy. >> just about 700,000 people turned out to ring in obama's new term, way down compared to the 1.8 million to turn out four years ago. >> clearly the excitement does not compare to the first term. what about here in europe. we asked people and politicians what they hoped to see from obama part 2. >> it is great he was reelected. he had four years and he has four more. it is a big opportunity. i think obama can now push the things that he wants to. things that are important to him. >> the u.s. is important to the global economy, so it is crucial that it manages to overcome the debt crisis. the main issue he needs to address is

, the historical themes of sacrifice for country, party unity. for obama the key theme is justice. if you go back to his major speeches, he tends to talk about a bargain between the american people and the government that if you play by the rules you will see the benefits and government has to be there to give you the benefits if you play by the rules. >> we're looking at the mall where everyone is happy and waving and one thing i have to say after having been on the mall four years ago, it was really cold. and -- >> you want to say how warm you are today, right? >> i'm very warm in the presence of my dear friends but also curious how different a second inauguration feels. >> i think it is. it's still to be celebrated and the re-election of president obama means that the first one wasn't a fluke and that's important. and i think it's especially -- i think it's especially important for african-americans that he has been re-elected and it puts in the serious ranks of chief executive and i agree with david this is a broad-brush time. i doubt there will be a sound of trumpets but i think we will see
obama promised a new vision for a troubled country. >> today i say to you that the challenges we face are real they are serious and they are many. they will not be met easily or in a short span of time but know this, america, they will be met!
